RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES TRAILERS AND VIDEOS
OFFICIAL INTERNATIONAL TRAILER
UPDATED JUNE 22, 2011 — A newer, expanded version of international trailer for RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES hit the web today along with a first look at a quad poster design, both courtesy of The Sun in the UK. This trailer runs a bit longer than the previous version, mainly by adding several new short clips and glimpses of Caesar including new shots of him wearing clothes in a public park. Fans have got to love how Caesar is wearing similar colors reminiscent of those worn by Cornelius, Zira and the chimps in the original PLANET OF THE APES. FilmEdge is working to get an unbranded, complete version of this international trailer as soon as we can.
This new trailer offers several unseen glimpses of Caesar, the experimental chimp (performed by Andy Serkis) whose intelligence grows in evolutionary steps after receiving a new serum intended to cure Alzheimer's Disease in humans. When scientist Will Rodman (James Franco) brings Caesar home to be raised outside the laboratory, the chimp's exposure to normal human interaction causes him to care about Rodman's father (John Lithgow) suffering from Alzheimer's. Unused to the complexity of human behavior, Caesar finds life in our world difficult, prompting a dangerous journey to discover Caesar's destiny in a world of humans and apes.
Watch for the new scenes of Caesar assisting Rodman's father at the dinner table, and Caesar's angry reaction when the elder man is threatened. Also, Caesar's seems to have found a potential mate in the lab, as implied by his compassionate embrace of another chimp. We also see a bit more about Tom Felton's character, an abusive and violent-tempered caretaker of the apes who no doubt inspire their revolt against his cruel treatment of the caged creatures. This international trailer shows off more of Serkis' character work for Caesar via his motion-capture performance, which continues to look promising for the film's origin story depicting the ape revolution over man.
